KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 3): A motion to debate and annul the Emergency Ordinances can be brought forth to the Parliament sitting slated next month, said Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He said this is in accordance with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah’s decree and Article 150 (3) of the Federal Constitution.

“The motion will be discussed in the Cabinet meeting tomorrow and it is hoped that it will solve the polemics on the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances in a harmonious and constitutional way,” he said in a statement here today.

“It is notified that the process of revoking the Emergency Ordinances by Yang di-Pertuan Agong as advised by the Cabinet on July 23, 2021 cannot be completed,” he said.

Muhyiddin said according to the Federal Constitution, the end of the Proclamation of Emergency on Aug 1 made the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances academic.
